14 Lightning Energy

I've reviewed quite a few of these decks, so I'm sure everyone knows by now how it works - eelektrik attaches energy from the discard pile, magnezone is a heavy hitter and draw engine, thundurus is a starter to get energy out of the deck and zekrom is the big attacker.

Pokemon Analysis
I can't think of anything that I would change to your current lines of pokemon.  Depending on your area meta, you may want to consider a Mewtwo EX counter, fighting counter or mirror counter.

Energy Analysis
If you find you need room in the deck for something else, you should be safe dropping down to 13 lightning energy.  If  you decide to add in anything to counter other decks, 2 of that energy type (fighting, DCE, etc....) is all that's needed.

Trainer/Supporter Analysis
I typically favor the 4th junk arm instead of the 3rd catcher.  It lets me put more energy in the discard pile for Eelektrik early in the game and gives me the option to use it for something else (like extra switches against durant).  I would probably take out your PONT for another N.  With a heavy magnezone line, the chances of you using N without Magnezone to rebuild your hand are slim.  The extra disruption to your opponent is always awesome too.

This is another deck deserving of a video review and I just wish I had more time to do them.  I still may be able to come back and do a video review of this deck (hopefully).  Nevertheless, thanks for submitting!
